Beaches off the beaten track

Menorca is much more than Macarella, Macarelleta and Turqueta. We are obsessed with wanting to visit the more well-known beaches of the island but there are other beaches we should visit which are not so busy.

That is why we have chosen from Discovery Menorca, three charming off the beaten track beaches with easy access.

Cales Morts beach – ideal for snorkelling.

This beach is less than 900 metres from the car park but it is overlooked as most people go past it to the more known beach of Cala Pregonda.  Reddish in colour, Cales Morts is a pebble beach with the remains of sea grass and some sandy areas.  The seabed is quite rocky and therefore a perfect place to observe aquatic life.

The three coves of Cala d’en Saler.

It is not just a beach but made up of three coves and only 500 metres from the carpark of the Ecomuseo de Cavalleria.  The largest of the three coves is about 10 metres long and about 15 metres wide.  Between the three there is plenty of shade provided by bamboo – the perfect place to rest in the heat of the day.

Binisafuller – typically Menorcan.

This is a peaceful and safe cove with white sand and, unlike the beaches of Macarella or Mitjana, is more tranquil.  This is a typical Menorcan cove with its whitewashed houses, jetty and a small boat for either fishing or swimming from.  After leaving Sant Lluis you will find the beach after the first car park you come to.
